1907. Hope was a barrister who gave up the law after realizing success with his novel The Prisoner of Zenda. The book begins: Common opinion said that Lord Lynborough ought never to have had a peerage and forty thousand a year; he ought to have had a pound a week and a back bedroom in Bloomsbury. Then he would have become an eminent man; as it was, he turned out only a singularly erratic individual. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
